PLATTE (Special) — A special hearing held here by Mr. O. H. Johnson, state director of Game and Fish, was largely attended by sportsmen from Mitchell, Lake Andes, Scotland, Corsica, Armour and Platte, and by several game wardens and deputies, including D. Allgier of Lake Andes.
The hearing was for the purpose of ascertaining sentiment concerning the closing of the Missouri river in South Dakota from the Rosebud Bridge south of Platte to the Nebraska state line, a distance of 12 1/4 miles, to further shooting of migratory waterfowl in season. The river has been closed from this bridge northward across the state to the North Dakota state line for a number of years, and the state fish and game department now proposes to close it the rest of the way. Considerable opposition was shown to the proposition, but the majority seemed to favor it.
I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
